ABSTRACT
The involvement of the ovary by malignant lymphoma is a well-known late manifestation of disseminated nodal disease. Primary ovarian lymphoma is rare. We herein describe a case of primary ovarian diffuse large B-cell lymphoma involving unilateral ovary in a 38-year-old woman which was detected incidentally. Preoperative ultrasonic imaging showed a 46∗42 mm heterogeneous cystic mass. Laparotomy revealed that left adnexal mass and left salpingo-oophorectomy was performed. The current diagnosis was determined after immunostaining. The patient was treated with R-CHOP regimen after the operation. She remains cancer-free 24 months after chemotherapy.

Mentions: Paraffin immunostaining studies showed strong positivity of the neoplastic cells for B cell CD20 and leucocyte commen antigen antibody (LCA) (Figures 2 and 3). Reactive T cell was stained with CD3. Tumor cells were negative for the T cell marker CD3. No immunoreactivity was noted with staining inhibin, CD117, and PLAP (Figure 4). These findings were in favor of diffuse large-cell malignant lymphoma of B-cell lineage.
